Project to create a nice terminal interface for the task management tool.

Current Functionality

  • Install
    • Allows Sly to run on your machine using your API credentials
    • Stores your API credentials in a .slyrc file in your HOME directory
  • Setup
    • Associate your current working directory with a specific project
    • Stores a .sly file in the project folder to store the linking details (specifically ID)
  • Stories
    • A small overview of the backlog, current and completed columns
  • Branching
    • Lets you create (if required) and checkout a named branch for a specific story, grouped into folders by their type


Bug reports and pull requests are welcome :)

Some times there are minor changes to how Sly caches data between releases; if you find Sly randomly stops working when upgrading your version, simply remove your .sly folder and run sly setup again.


Unfortunately, the majority of testing (of the Sly CLI) requires a account - then again, why would you be touching this if you didn't have an account in the first place? :P

To run the suite of tests, simply use the standard rake command.
